Where's wallaby? A marsupial is on the run in Cornwall

The RSPCA is asking people in Cornwall to contact them if they see a wallaby after one was spotted earlier this week.

The animal welfare charity was called by a member of the public who had spotted the marsupial roaming near South Petherwin in Launceston, during Monday evening, 8 May.

The RSPCA believes it has escaped from somewhere and would be keen to hear from anyone who may be missing a wallaby.

  • Anyone who spots the wallaby or knows where it came from should contact the RSPCA inspector line on 0300 123 8018.
